Application

Designed for cutting narrow, straight trenches in the soil prior to laying electrical, telephone and cable lines, or water and gas pipe.

Direct Drive System

Direct drive system features a variable speed, bi-directional, gerotor style motor that delivers optimal chain speed, chain pull and torque for maximum trenching performance in a broad range of soil types.

Durable Anti-Back Flex Chain

Durable, double standard anti-back flex chain eliminates chain backlash and ensures teeth are positioned at the most efficient angle for smooth cutting and longer tooth life.

Hard-faced, Tungsten Carbide Steel Cupped Teeth

Hard-faced, tungsten carbide steel cupped teeth deliver long life in many soil conditions. Teeth are spaced for optimum digging performance in most soil types.

Hydraulic or Manual Sideshift

Hydraulic or manual sideshift provides close trenching flexibility near structures or obstructions. Hydraulic sideshift, standard on the T15B (optional on T6B and T9B) is controlled from operator’s compartment using the standard flow auxiliary hydraulic circuit selector control.

Large Diameter Bolt-on Spoil Auger

Large diameter bolt-on spoil auger improves loose soil removal from trenching area and allows for quick, easy removal and servicing.

Optional Chain Types and Cutting Widths

Optional chain types and cutting widths are available for specific soil, digging requirements and trench widths. These chain types include Standard, Combo, Terminator, and Rockfrost.

Optional Bolt-on Crumber Bar

Optional bolt-on crumber bar with shoe improves soil removal to provide cleaner trench. Shoes available in size range to accommodate trench width.
